BELIEVE IN MAGIC by Paula Perron

When I was a little girl, every Saturday morning, I would walk to the local library for story time at 9 am. Once there, I sat excited and ready to listen to the fairy tale the librarian planned for that week.

For one hour I entered into a magical world where a princess always marries a prince and they live happily ever after.

   In the magical world, crickets and animals talk, a wooden puppet becomes a real boy, Elephants can fly, wishes come true, and a kiss awakens a sleeping beauty.

Today I still find magic in a different way

There is magic in how the trees know when to waken and when to sleep; the flowers know when to bloom; the snow and rain know when they are wanted; food we eat grows in dirt and on trees, and the magic of love comes to everyone If they believe.

In the 20’s and 30’s Louis Armstrong inspired Jazz

  Duke Ellington gave it pizzazz

Ella Fitzgerald came around then

Gene Autry was in the saddle again

We go to the 40’s and in demand

Is Harry James and his band

Tommy Dorsey plays his best

Doris day is his guest

It’s the 50’s and who should appear

New Groups and Singers I had to hear

Frank Sinatra, Perry Como, Johnny Cash

Kay Starr, Loretta Lynn, Ink Spots, make a splash

In the 60’s and 70’s, Pop Music is in

Beach Boys, Beatles, Carpenters win

Elton John, Carole King, Marvin Gaye

Hot. Hot, Hot, all the way

The 80’s on there’s lots of mix

County, Pop and Rock gives us the fix

Rihanna, Phil Collins, Taylor Swift, all great

Take the time to listen, don’t wait

What is the magic of three?

Superstition or factual, let me see

In football, a field goal’s points are three

In Baseball, you are out at strike three

A turkey in bowling is strikes of three

In math, the triangle has edges of three

The circus has rings of three

The Holy Trinity is three

Jesus rose on day number three

Bad luck always comes in three

Superstition or factual- the answer I see

I love you, is the greatest magic of three


NEW LIFE by Paula Perron
              NEW LIFE
The future brings us all new life
A better world without strife
A promise of great things to come
And no one cares where you are from
A world we will treat as new
The first to see the morning dew
The new buds on all the trees
The flowers that attract the bees
The newborn baby’s first cry
The songs of birds in the sky
The waves on a sunny beach
The top of  mountains we can reach
A fresh new life for us to spend
And every one is a friend+

               A FEW GREAT BOOKS by Paula Perron

               A FEW GREAT BOOKS

There are many great books
Just like many great cooks
As for myself.  I’ll name a few
Those I re-read as new
First is Outlander series, I love
I rate this over and above
Second is one in 1936, I say with a grin
Gone with the Wind, a big, big win
Next is Beloved with many an honor
And a Nobel prize bestowed upon her
Next, Carrie, one of many  this author sold
None of these will ever grow old
